This is expected behaviour. Currently the Position to Job Requisition mapping template only supports Simple Text, and no other formats.


Please note that you should only configure "text" fields as the destination field in the Job Requisition. Please do not configure destination fields as "numeric".

To map a decimal field, you will need to use the "Format()" function to map a decimal field (on Position) to a TEXT field in the Job Requisition. For example -:
